ADHD research to understand the root cause and improve treatments

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is very common and often runs in families. There is a lot to learn about the disorder and how to best treat it. Medication and behavior therapy are often recommended, but effects can vary widely from person to person and treatment needs and preferences change as children get older. ADHD care is often fragmented and difficult for many families to access. As a result, ADHD is often undertreated and leads to a range of behavioral and mental health problems.

Dr. Mark Stein is working to change that, through ADHD studies examining how ADHD presents at different ages in families and developing new treatments and treatment strategies. His lab’s goal is to move the field closer to more personalized and effective treatments. The Stein Lab also aims to train the next generation of healthcare providers to work together to manage ADHD from every angle, to help kids succeed now and as they grow up.
